I have 3 boards and have been using them for a long time, actually Jan of 2014. I bought the n-button software and they have worked just fine since then. Since N-Button wont handle MQTT I started looking around and decided to pick up and learn Home Assistant and would like to continue to use these boards and maybe even get more.
The boards I have:
ZUXPR810ProXR_USB - Industrial Relay Controller 8-Channel SPDT + UXP Expansion Port
USCS48 - UXP 48-Channel Contact Closure Detector Expansion Board connected to the 8 channel UXP port
ZUXPSR1610PROXR_ETHERNET - Industrial Relay Controller 16-Channel SPDT + UXP Expansion Port
I came back to your website a couple months ago and saw you have MQTT access now. But I don’t see much documentation.
I see on Relay Controller 8-Channel General Purpose SPDT + 8 Channel ADC ProXR Lite - store.ncd.io
it lists * Use MQTT to Talk to this Device from the Internet when using our New WiFi Module
DO I have to buy the WiFi module or can I use ethernet? I don’t like wireless when I can avoid it.
If I buy an ethernet module I should be able to replace the USB module on the ZUXPR810ProXR board and then have complete control / access to the 8 relays and reading of the 48-Channel Contact Closure UXP Board? Is there any documentation on accessing this ethernet module and setting it up to send and receive MQTT messages? I already have a MQTT gateway with over 200 devices.
I saw you posted ProXR Quick Start Guide - ncd.io
Will I just send TX commands via mqtt message load? or is there some other functionality that is present?

this is the only mention of MQTT that i can find. Is it software installed on the esp, and thus not compatible with the ethernet module? Ethernet to Serial Communications Module - New Gen 3 - store.ncd.io
